Using too much solution AND leaving dirty streaks in my carpet

I have used my cleaner 3 times the first two times were very small rooms and i was pleased, the 3rd time my living room and i had to refill the solution 4 times! (I have a very small living room) It also leaves dirty streaks. This thing is brand new so I shouldn't have to replace anything at all.

The reason for it to use soloution is it may be set on heavy traffic. To fix this turn your knob labeled heavy,normal& light traffic and water rinse to either normal or light traffic. To fix the streaks when you pull the machine backward pull it super slow (you may have to do this a few times) if this dont work take it back

I cannot remove the roller brush for shark vacuum


Remove the rubber "bumper" material from the outer edge. Small slits are exposed where the roller is attached to the rest of the vacuum. u can figure the rest out. I wedged my finger in between the roller edge and lower plate. Use whatever you want. Hope that helps.

Too much solution being dispensed--carpets very wet--running out of solution before even 1/3 of room cleaned


The cleaning solution tank is only sufficient for part of a room, unless the room is very small.

Are you following the instructions for using the cleaner carefully? The machine has to be pulled backwards (towards you) at a steady pace in order for the vacuum to pick up the water that is dispensed. Do not use it like a normal vacuum cleaner - that will not work.

You need to start facing a wall, and pull the cleaner towards you, moving at about one foot every two or three seconds. The vacuum will then pick up the water that has been dispensed and the carpet will be damp but not sodden.

A friend loaned me her Bissell Proheat Turbo carpet cleaner and I don't know how to use it - any help?


I like these cleaners.

First vacuum your carpet very thoroughly.

Depress the lever to tilt back the handle.
Grab the tank from the base. Remove the lid.
Fill the bladder with hot tap water. Replace the lid, and place tank back into the base. Put the handle back upright until it locks into place.
Take the soap container on the side and fill it with the Bissel soap solution. Place your dial on floor cleaner, and select either soap or heavy traffic.
Turn on the machine and the heater. Take your machine to the far end of the room and depress the handle put the machine in the corner depress the trigger and you will see a little spinning thing on the machine starting to spin - this means that the solution is blending and the spray is wetting the carpet. Pull the machine slowly back towards you about three feet and then let go of the trigger and pull the machine a couple more inches. When you stop the trigger will release. Push the machine forward and repeat the pull pass this time without depressing the trigger. For the next pass - overlap each and every pass (I do each pass at the half way point). Do this along the back wall. When you depress the trigger and that spinning dial does not spin - you are either out of water or out of soap. Go over the entire room with this technique.
Now this next step is VERY important. You have to do the whole room process AGAIN - this time with NO SOAP. I have used these machines for years and trust me - if you don't go over it again - your carpet will be a magnet for dirt. This time empty out your soap cup and rinse it out and refill it with WHITE VINEGAR. Again fill your tank with hot water. Re-do the entire room as if you are shampooing the carpet.

Let the carpet dry overnight - the next morning I would recommend applying scotchguard carpet protector (you can get the cans at H.D. or Lowes. Yes the Bissell solution has scotchguard, BUT when I apply the scotchguard again - the carpet stays so much cleaner so much longer.

Do it right the first time and don't cut corners and you will have the cleanest carpet on the block. It's a long process to do it right, but the end result is worth it.

OR if you want to save money and use something more environmentally friendly - fill with white vinegar. This will work just as good and leave your carpet less sticky from the soap and your carpet will stay cleaner longer.

I lost power.?


Check all filters, hoses, and the bottom. One or all maybe clogged, so you will need to clean it out. Also check the small areas where the hose attaches to the vacuum. Good Luck!

Our machine works 3 minutes - and then 10 minutes it does not


The usual suction problem with these things is related to a clogged lint filter. I had the same problem as you with my carpet being completely soaked. Try checking the lint filter. It is located in the top clear plastic section (the one with the dial to switch from tool to floor use). There is a small (1 inch square) red plastic filter on the under side. Try flipping open the little door and you will probably find it clogged with hair and carpet fibre. Clean it out and hopefully you will have suction again.

Fixing my vacuum cleaner


Check to make sure that your agitator still spins. (Agitator = brush). If your agitator still spins, it eliminates your belt and agitator as likely culprits. The last possible solution would be that your vacuum is clogged. The grinding sound might be a motor-related issue or could possibly mean your bearings are going out. Check the bearings of the agitator and the motor of the vacuum.

Accessing to the agitator and belt can be done by removing the bottom cover of your vacuum. There are 2 scews that are holding the bottom cover to the head of the unit. Remove these 2 scews and the bottom cover should snap off.

This also happened to us. I just got a new one in the mail - did it over the internet on their website. Haven't tried it yet so hope it is the solution to our problem.
